    I was going over and paying attention to my battery life. It waste pretty fast.
    When I go to settings>about phone>battery use, I see that while my phone is idle it waste 8% battery. It used to waste just 2% or close by it. I have JD and SetCPU installed to underclock while screen of and OC while screen on.

    Why might my phone waste so much battery?
    **Keep in mind i'm OC to 1.9ghz.

    Try recalibrating your battery. It could be inaccurate percents reading, but also having it at 1.9ghz might drain it.
    But if you are using LTE forget it, that thing Burns your battery alive.

    My bat died last night while I was out, seemed to be have lasted a typical amount of time. I plugged in in while I was driving home and it was still off.
    When I got home I turned it on. I checked the battery usage just out of curiosity. It said that Metro Nav had used 82% of the battery, the weird thing is that I have never turned on Metro Nav and as far as I could tell it was not on when I was checking the Battery usage, I was also thinking since my phone was off it seemed even stranger that it was indicating the Metro Nav had been using 82% of the power. Can anyone explain this?

    If you are not using 4g by any means i suggests you to turn of data. You'll be saving twice the battery life.

    Lte Burns alot of juice because you end up using two frequencies radio of the phone, those being CDMA/1xRTT AND lte 4g. Now, as you start using LTE you constantly using CDMA for service ( call, sms, Service etc) and 4g data( emails, browser, internet etc).

    Thats true, date off saves tons of battery. The thing is I use the internet here and there. Thats why I have JD to turn it off while phone screen is off.

    I have my 4g turned off most of the time because there is usually Wifi available, seems as though the Wifi uses less power so my battery last longer by quite a bit.
